Our chapter has a number of Committees in which you may be interested. Members are welcome to sit in on a meeting to see if it suits your interests. None of the committees require a huge committement. Contact us to find out more about the committees we may find a match. Interacting with other people with hearing loss where communication is taken into consideration can be a big stress reliever.


Would you like to volunteer at our Assistive Listening Demonstration Center?
You do not have to be a technical wizard to help at our "Demo" Center! 

Work with others setting up the center and providing information at your level of understanding. There are always members of our Technology Committee who will help you provide information to visitors. You can learn by doing in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere
